Ara nga korero a Rick Powdrell heamana o BOP Federated Farmers meat and fibre mo te kaupapa take e hangai ana ki te utu putea o te wai.

Hei ta Rick Powdrell kei te kii te Kawanatanga kei te noho kore mana te wai i te whanuitanga o Aotearoa. No reira te whakaaro o Rick Powdrell e kore tetahi tangata e ahei ki te tango putea i tetahi atu tangata hei whakautu i te wai. Otira ki hea rano e tukutuku aua putea wai ta te mea kare tetahi tangata e whai mana i te wai o te whenua.

Hoi ano kei te kii a Nandor Tanczos o Te Kaunihera o Whakatane ko te puritanga wai he mea kehua na tetahi kaitorangapu me te mea hoki karekau he ture kawanatanga hei tautoko i taua puritanga wai.

Ta Nandor Tanczos tena pea me whakarite i tetahi kaupapa take kia tu ake ai hei tetahi rauemi arikitanga me te whakaae a Rick Powdrell ehara he mea whakaaro tonu.

Otira me whakaheipu te putea kia whakautu i nga whakahoutanga me te whakatikahanga o te rauemi whenua. Me whakatu hoki i tetahi rangapu hapori mana e whakahaere i aua putea wai.
